lazy, sore, tired gorgeous saturday
we are both sore. and both tired. jambaloney fell asleep in his chair reading his book a little while ago - i really wanted to wake him and move him to the bed but he is out cold and i don't want to disturb him. we have been painting our kitchen cupboards, hauling rocks, shovelling over our compost heap, getting the seed starting tray ready and a bunch of other things over the past week. we are both sore and tired!
we went to bed late last night as both of us were too sore to lay down in bed - bahahahah - isn't that crazy-sounding? even with many trips to the hottub over the past few days and nights, we are still sore from being cramped up trying to paint the crappy cupboards - 3 coats of primer and 2 coats of white paint - ugh! and then last night apparently i was sleep-talking about food to jambaloney. he told me that i woke him 3 times from a dead sleep talking about nonsense - something that i have done since i was a child. i sleepwalk, too!
whenever i sleeptalk or sleepwalk it means that i didn't get a good night's rest. same for poor jambaloney - why he puts up with me, i'll never know? maybe it's because i make a mean stir-fry, or maybe it's because i bought him a canoe! anyway, i didn't sleep well and neither did he, what with me waking him up 3 times! and then at some point in the night our mouser, barrel, brought in a weasel. a beautiful, white one according to jambaloney - i didn't see it thank goodness. our other cat noodle woke up jambaloney at about 5am, playing with the weasel! jambaloney picked it up and brought it to a safe place outside and we are not certain if it is dead or just in shock. i don't want to go and look and see if it is still there. i hope it got over it's shock and is frolicking in the forest now.
i was sitting at my computer reading some blogs and realized just how cramped and sore i felt. so i went out and got in the hottub. it's a really gorgeous day out there - the birds are really feeling spring in the air and are chirping like mad! i have daylillies in pots that are popping their green heads out of the dirt. the air smells wonderful! i got in the hottub and relaxed my poor, sore, arthritic hands. it felt wonderful.
the only thing missing was jambaloney. he's still flopped in his big, comfy chair and out cold. poor guy is so tired. i am not going to let him do any jobs today - i will take him for a nice walk down to the river later though. and i am going to go and make him some dinner in a few. the smell of food cooking always wakes him.
i hope you all are having a gorgeous saturday too!
